How much does a blacktop/asphalt driveway cost?
What's under our Driveways
We install our driveways with a 4-inch crushed concrete base, compacted with a power roller. Next step after the masonry end is done, is coming back and regrading the base and power rolling again. Finally, we install 2 inches of asphalt blacktop and power roll again to leave the blacktop smooth. For those seeking driveway patios ideas, our process ensures a solid foundation. Generally, this comprehensive approach guarantees a durable and visually appealing result.
Demolition & Base Prep
The first step to getting a new paver driveway is ripping up your existing asphalt and subbase. After carting that away, we’ll compact the ground and add a new RCA subbase. The RCA will be compacted using a power roller. It is advised you park on the subbase for the next 2-3 weeks to help it settle more before its time to do the new asphalt. If you are expanding your driveway into an area that was lawn, we will cart away all the soil as well.
Adding Masonry Products to Your Driveway
After the existing driveway was taken away and the new base was installed it is your choice if you want to add masonry products to your driveway. For example, borders, aprons, curbing or any type of inlays. Applications like paver borders, paver aprons or belgium block curbs are installed on a concrete subbase.
